HB&B Top Three: Low ABV Beers

Great tasting, alcohol-free beers are - perhaps surprisingly - one of the most common requests at our shop. Luckily we have a great range of no-booze beers that really hit the spot, for all the refreshment and none of the headache. Here are three of the best.

Maisel’s Weisse Hefe-Weissbier Alkoholfrei
Regulars at HB&B might have seen this one lurking in the corner at the back - it’s a constant on our German shelves. Despite never exceeding 0.5% alc/vol, no compromises are made on flavour with this beer from Maisel’s, brewers of great wheat beers. Its rich spice and orange flavours and soft, sweet banana aromas make it a great Bavarian hefe-weisse beer. Click to purchase.

Brewdog Nanny State
The best-selling beer in the shop during #DryJanuary, Nanny State “gives the V's to Abv”. This beer is full to the brim with hops, giving citrusy, piney flavours balanced against a light and bitter body. This pale ale is one for the hop-heads. Click to purchase.

Square Root/Pressure Drop Smallbanger Wit Beer Shandy
Pressure Drop teamed up with London soda-makers Square Root to create this ridiculously tasty Wit Beer Shandy. It takes Pressure Drop’s already fantastic Lime & Ginger Wallbanger Wit and injects Square Root’s fresh soda. The result is so refreshing, we might just give up booze altogether...

Bonus Beer! Schofferhofer Grapefruit
Coming in at the 2.5% ABV mark, this is obviously not an alcohol-free beer, but it’s so damn good that we thought you ought to know about it, and what’s 2.5% between friends? This incredibly sweet and refreshing brew is made by blending Schofferhoffer Hefeweizen with carbonated grapefruit juice. The perfect beer to accompany the last of the summer sun. Click to purchase.
